Gitmo Defense Lawyers, ACLU, May Have Outed Covert CIA Agents; Crickets Chirping From The Left
This is stunning:
The Justice Department recently questioned military defense attorneys at Guantanamo Bay about whether photographs of CIA personnel, including covert officers, were unlawfully provided to detainees charged with organizing the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, according to sources familiar with the investigation.
How much screaming from the left did we hear about the “treason” committed by members of the Bush administration after covert agent Valerie Plame was outed in 2003 (before anyone says it, she was covert; but, nobody violated the IIPA since nobody outside of the CIA knew it in order to be charged with violating it)? It was endless and still going on today now and again. But will we hear anything from these same clowns about this? Don’t hold your breath. In fact, good luck getting them to mention that covert agents may have been involved.
And what about the ACLU and the defense attorneys? Stop the ACLU has the perfect sentence for this:
In the world of ACLU lawyers jihadas have privacy rights to defend, yet American citizens fighting for America don’t.
Ed Morrissey sees this as a justification for believing captured terrorists shouldn’t be treated like common criminals in civil court (I agree). Jim Hoft mentions that lefty statists will call fellow Americans who disagree with them over health care “teabaggers” and “mobsters”, but bend over backwards to help terrorists. Sister Toldjah, Michelle Malkin, and GayPatriot all weigh in as well.
Consider this an open thread.
